Blackberry Bold 9000 and Orange UK. (Blackberry Maps)

I have recently got a Blackberry 9000 Bold with Orange UK. Everything seemed fine until I tried to find Blackberry maps, an application that was advertised as being on the Bold.  Sadly, I couldn't find it even though the software was listed in the applications info on the device. 

 

I promptly phoned Orange UK informed me that they have had tons of calls about this and that they were trying to get things sorted.  They sent out a SimCard update etc.  

 

I then found that the device was updated with Gmail... Excellent, but still no MAPS.

 

Someone else advised me to try google maps and I am yet too because...

 

I HAVE FOUND THAT IF YOU CHANGE YOUR THEME IN THE SETTINGS TO THE SILVER RATHER THAN THE ORANGE(THEME), 

 

BLACKBERRY MAPS IS IN THE MENU AND WORKS!!!!!!!!!!!

 

AMAZING.  ALL I NEED NOW IS A VERSION OF POCKET MAC FOR THE BOLD 9000 AND MY MACBOOK PRO?

 

ANY IDEAS?????? 

 

I hope the above is of some help because it seems as though loads of people are phoning Orange about it!
